REPORT: RICKY RAY DONE FOR THE SEASON, DURANT AN OPTION?
Head coach Scott Milanovich said Ray is "very sore'' with an upper-body injury, but did not provide further details.
Montreal Gazette football writer Herb Zurkowsky reports Ray has sustained a punctured lung and is done for the year.
A team official later said Milanovich was expected to address Ray's injury situation on Friday after practice.
It's unknown when Ray suffered the injury. He went the distance in Monday night's 49-36 road loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Speculation is mounting that the Toronto Argonauts could look to the Saskatchewan Roughriders to help salvage their season. With the Riders nearly out of playoff contention at 1-9 and quarterback Darian Durant's contract expiring at season's end, it could make sense for Saskatchewan to ship Durant to Toronto as "a rental".
Under that scenario, Durant could play out the season with Toronto but sign back with Saskatchewan once his contract expires in February.
